to block chuck hagel, and now that they are scoffing at even the prospect of jack lew at treasury, there are two options for understanding what republicans are doing here. they are either just making noise to convince their base that they still exist, and the beltway is dutifully reporting it as if it matters, but it doesn't. all those nominations are going to be or would have been fine, or the other option is that republicans really are going to try to set an absolutely historically unprecedented bar against the president nominating his chosen cabinet in a way that has never happened before in u.s. history. they will block, say, a nominee for treasury secretary because mitch mcconnell once felt irked in his presence. if that is really what they are planning, keep in mind that the republicans' mandate for doing this is something that they think derives from an election that the president just won by a lot and which their party lost seats in both the house and the senate. so it's either total nonsense what they are saying about these nominees, or it is totally unprecedented. totall
administration official has confirmed president obama will nominate former senator chuck hagel as secretary of defense. the former senator is a republican from nebraska but could face a tough fight. he was against the surge in iraq and has said military action in iran would be a bad idea. he has also raised eyebrows with some statements he's made about israel leading some people to question whether he would be loyal to the nation. >> chuck hagel is a tremendous patriot and statesman, served incredibly in vietnam, served in country as a u.s. states senator. he hasn't had a chance to speak for himself and so why all the prejudging, i don't know. >> congress will not be in session when the nomination is made tomorrow. >>> the edge on d.c. now where a man's body was found in the narrow creek in the 8100 block of beach drive near portal street drive northwest. at this point investigators do not believe there was foul play. the metropolitan mitt and u.s. park police are investigating -- police department and u.s. park police are investigating. >>> in d.c. police investigating three separate shoot
of confirming president obama will nominate chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense. the news is drawing criticisms from republicans and democrats. >>brian: jennifer, all engines straight ahead for senator hagel? >> that's right. what has republicans and democrats up in arms are remarks hagel made when he was in the senate, about israel. in a 2006 interview with former middle east convoy david miller, hagel said the following: >> i'm a united states senator. i'm a united states senator. [inaudible] >> hagel favored direct talks with iran and is one of two senators to vote against sanctioning iran. members of the senate armed services committee are questioning the president's choice. >> hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense, would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. not only has he said you should directly negotiate with iran, sanctions won't work, that israel must negotiate with hamas, an organization, terrorist group that lobbed thousands of rockets into israel. >> his defenders point to his two purple hearts in viet
nominees. look at the chuck hagel nominee. they've been hanging them out to dry essentially. and for members of congress to have their opportunity to throw shots at them. it's been rather interesting and rare that the transition has been so bumpy, especially for a president going into its second term. but, look, there's still a lot of turnover going into the cabinet. even though the president announce three cabinet members are staying on for a while. who knows if that's going to be six months, a year, two years. we'll see if he's going to nominate more women. i do believe he'll be under immense pressure to appointment the secretary of labor to succeed hill da solis. i want to bring in charlie rangel. congressman. >> to see you as always. first black president. he's getting questions about diversity. are you concerned? >> of course, i'm concerned. any questions are fair and the record speaks for itself. >> if the record speaks for itself, what does it say going into the second term? >> it's as embarrassing as hell. we've been through all of this with mitt romney. and we were

. the news faces include his nomination of john kerry at state, chuck hagel at defense, jack lew takes over treasury and the president still has to fill the labor secretary post. we're told that some of the first-timers sticking around for the second term include the attorney general, that's eric holder. health secretary cath leaning sebelius and veterans affairs secretary eric shinseki. joining me now is stephen clemens, the editor-at-large at the atlantic. thanks for coming in on a saturday. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> the president's being criticized. we've said this a couple of times because of his new cabinet picks, that they're all white men and it doesn't reflect sort of the makeup of america. is that fair? >> well, i think when you look at a portion of a cabinet, you might be able to make that argument, and i don't think president obama is saying the first four years that he did the diversity thing and now he's moving beyond that to bring in you know a lot of elder white gentleman. i think if chuck hagel with his accomplishments happened to be a gay hispanic man, barack ob
of those as the vice president. but chuck hagel, coal colin powell supposed to be on "meet the press" this sunday. does he have the political power to smooth the waters in washington, d.c.? chuck hagel being seen as a split from the neocon conservative leftovers. >> i do think colin powell lends credibility to the nomination of chuck hagel. but there are key senators like senator chuck schumer that will make a big difference. with regard to senator schumer, i cannot speak more highly than senator schumer. i was seeking the aim accusations when i was running as senator of pennsylvania in 2010. senator schumer called me and came in to philadelphia and met with the jewish literee leaders having understood having been in the military, we would have laid down our lives for the defense of israel. i went to the middle east with senator hagel and heard him talk about having the strength of having america defend israel. my take on end of the day, senator schumer critically will probably do what he did once for america, defend that that is best for national security interests. i think he's goi
about chuck hagel. the conversation was about chuck hagel and colin powell's support for chuck hagel, and he's being questioned about chuck hagel talking about the jewish lobby, and colin powell said that's a slip of the tongue, that happens. he meant the israeli lobby. so he's correct to defend chuck hagel, for a phrase that many saw as anti-semitic and intolerant. and not sarah palin. >> i thought you were going to break out the aggressively gay comment made by chuck hagel. before we get to l.z.'s viewpoint, i want to hear what jay carney said, one of the president's men. listen. >> i'm going to shuck and jive. time to shuck and jive. that's the super secret book. >> so, l.z., jay carney, the white house spokesman, said shuck and jive too. doesn't that muddy the waters a bit? >> no, of course not. it all depends upon who is saying it, what is the phrase is -- who the phrase is directed toward, and what is its intent? in the sarah palin incident, she was blowing a dog whistle. with carney, he was just referring to himself. those are two different things. i want to back up to some of
for treasury secretary, and chuck hagel as secretary of defense, which could be the president's biggest battle. i'm going to bring in now jason johnson to talk about this. he is a professor of political science and the chief political correspondent at politic365. let's start with chuck hagel because he's republican, bipartisanship we thought about here, kumbaya moment. not working out so well. >> there's no kumbaya moments in washington, d.c. republicans are still bitter. a lot of them don't like that chuck hagel has been so close to president obama for a long time. i think this is a bunch of sort of chest beating right now. i think hagel will get through. obama might have to fight for it but i think he gets through. >> you don't think it will be a squeaker. some say he may not get the nod. >> there are a lot of republican who is will come out and say we have a with him, we have to vet him, but many believe the constitutionality of the president being able to select the cabinet. a lot of republicans feel in the end we'll let him through. the president should be able to this have his cabinet. w
's best. in case you missed it all, here's a look back at the week that was. >> chuck hagel may need those war survival skills. >> chuck hagel's leadership of our military would be historic. >> this is an in-your-face nomination by the president. >> two nightmarish incidents are now under investigation. >> a fuel leak is always a serious matter. >> always unacceptable. >> what a beautiful woman, wow. >> i think the media has been unfair to him. >> a beautiful woman, a few ugly plane problems and more petty politics ruled this week that was, one that began with some key cabinet picks like chuck hagel. >> i came to admire his courage and his judgment. even if it wasn't popular. >> turns out, he's not too popular with some. >> chuck hagel if confirmed to be secretary of defense would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. >> profoundly wrong on some of the biggest national security threats confronting the united states today. >> the mechanical problems just keep rolling in from boeing's 787 dreamliner. >> more like a nightmare. three
nominations, john kerry, chuck hagel and john brennan they are all white males. does the president have a diversity problem? hey, we'll get into that. afterall, he is the first african-american president. but first the latest out in los angeles, here she is with today's current news update, lisa ferguson. hi, lisa. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. vice president joe biden continues his talks on gun control today. he's meeting at 2:15 this afternoon with representatives from the video gaming community along with researchers who study the effects of simulated violence on young kids. last night's meeting with the hollywood entertainment industry went relatively well according to representatives at the meeting. they said the industry appreciates being included in the dialogue and looks forward to doing its part in seeking meaningful solutions. it still is not quite clear though what more washington can do to force tv shows and movies to temper the violence. >>> as for yesterday's meeting with the nra that, one didn't go so well. yesterday's talks had nothing to do with keep
to kick off his second term but three of his top picks could face tough nomination. chuck hagel will have to answer questions about past comments he made about israel and gays. and john brennan picked to lead the c.i.a. will have to answer questions to link to enhanced interrogation techniques during the bush administration. jeff sessions and others coming out against jack lew for treasury-secretary. sessions says he believes lew 2010 budget testimony before congress was, quote, the most colossal misrepresentation in history. listen. >> i just had one vote on it. i do think the senate needs to push back against this idea that people can come before our committee and say anything they want to inaccurately and two years later want to be promoted to a higher office in our country really in the world. the secretary of treasury and we shouldn't treat that lightly. he needs to be held to account in my opinion. >> arthel: in order to get these nominees appointed, will president obama l have on to expend a lot of capital? former outreach director for john mckay and christy is director of new heig
, with all kinds of clout would be the perfect choice. but chuck hagel will have to fight for confirmation. republican chuck hagel has one very important democrat on his side -- >> i've served with chuck hagel. i know him. he's a patriot. >> reporter: but when news broke that he'd be the pick for secretary of defense, prominent republicans, who would be a part of the confirmation, called him an in-your-face pick. >> it's difficult to imagine a circumstance in which i could support his nomination. >> it's a controversial choice. >> reporter: even conservative groups got in on the fight against hagel. >> chuck hagel is not a responsible option. >> reporter: why is everyone so sour on the former republican senator? last month he had to issue an apology for comments made in 1998 about president clinton's nominee to be ambassador to luxembourg, calling him openly, aggressively gay. in 2007, hagel dared to speak out against the planned troop surge in iraq. >> the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country, since vietnam. >> reporter: and his controversial comments on israel incensed m
, chuck hagel, he's going to be meeting one-on-one with a lot of other senators this week, including chuck schumer. let me play for you just sort of a bllittle mash-up of what we heard on the sunday shows. >> superbly qualified based on his overall record, based on how feels about troops and veteran families. >> i think another thing, george, is going to come up is just his overall temperament and is he suited to run a department or a big agency or a big entity like the pentagon. >> at this point would you vote against him? >> no. nor would i vote for him. i think we've got -- this is why we have hearings. >> he's going to have to answer questions. he's prepared to do it. i think he'll come out of this with strong support. >> michael, i guess the question is the same as it was on the previous topic, which is, how serious are his opponents and how much of a fight is this going to be? >> well, i think it's a little bit tvd, it's not -- it us 23409 does not appear as serious as the would be nomination of susan rice to secretary of state, which john mccain and several other prominent republica
for chuck hagel in the long run. first of all, are the american people paying attention to this? i mean, i think if you could get the american people involved and they start representatives and say i have a problem with this or i light chuck hagel, then it becomes a hotter topic and you might see some sort of possibility that it doesn't happen. but if you don't get the american people involved, i think it is an easy situation for him. people talk about political capital. why would the president do this kind of fight? he was elected for four more years. to me, this president has shown in the first four years that he's willing to go to battle for these types of things because remember when he won the first election, one of the first thing he said was "i won the election." >>steve: after george bush and george bush lost all his political capital by the time katrina hit. he was not able to use his political capital to get social security passed. that was after winning the election and beating john kerry. >>brian: what is wrong -- what are the challenging things about senator hey dell? number o
fights brewing in washington today. including gun control, the confirmation of chuck hagel at defense and the looming and unpleasant sequel to the fiscal cliff. here, the host of abc's "this week," george stephanopoulos who knows everything and can see the future too. george, let's talk about gun control. the vice president will submit his proposal for post-newtown gun control on tuesday we believe. it seems to be coalescing around cracking down on high-capacity magazines and also beefing up background checks on gun buyers. can the administration muscle those two things through? >> the white house also says they will continue to push the assault weapons ban but they know they won't get it through. lots of opposition to that. they do believe they can create a consensus particularly around this idea of background checks, universal background checks and the nra not backing down yet, though, which is also why the white house will look at executive orders they can act on on their own. tightening enforcement or gun laws. more data sharing for where sales are coming from and you see people l
morning. controversial pick. president obama sets to nominate former republican senator chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense, a decision that is critics on both the left and the right. this morning, retired general stanley mccrystal weighs in, in a live interview. his first since he resigned amid controversy of his own. >>> alabama high school student is under arrest prepared for an attack against fellow students. a teacher uncovering the alleged plan in a notebook left in class. it was found at the suspect's home that has police even more worried. >>> and a father's concern. prince charles opens up about his son, harry's service in afghanistan. >> i worry every time. >> and he looks ahead to life as a grandfather "today," monday, january 7th, 2013. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with is savannah guthrie live rockefeller plaza. >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a monday morning. i'm matt lauer alongside savannah guthrie, al roker and natalie morales. the gang is back together in a long time for a really long time. >> not since last year. >> that old t
to him. >> beautiful woman, few ugly plane problems and key cabinet picks like chuck hagel. >> i came to admire his courage, his judgment, his willingness to speak his mind, even if it wasn't popular. >> turns out he's not too popular with some. >> chuck hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense, would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. >> profoundly wrong on some of the biggest national security threats confronting the united states today. >>> mechanical problems keep rolling in for boeing's 787 dreamliner. >> more like a nightmare. three of boeing's brand new planes suffered a slue of issues. >> fire and leaking fuel. >> error message related to the plane's braking system. >> all these little glitches that boeing says they are, or is there something else that's happening? >> reporter: nope. boeing says just growing pains. but airlines are growing impatient. >> they have a quality problem. and this quality problem should be resolved. >> reporter: speaking of problems. >> wow, i tell you quarterbacks, you get all the
be. rich: president obama will nominate former republican senator from nebraska chuck hagel to lead the department at the pentagon. a number of republicans have had issues with hagel. he has reportedly erected talks with hamas, some say he is not pro- israel enough. it has a number of republicans lined up against him in opposition. >> he has long severed ties with the republican party. this is an in-your-face nomination by the president. i do not know what is management experience is regarding the pentagon. i think it is an incredibly controversial choice. rich: this sets up a big fight in the u.s. senate. this at a time when those automatic defense cuts have been delayed for two months and that fiscal cliff deal. there are major questions in washington on defense spending going forward. this is a pretty timely opponent or appointment for the president when you consider all that is going on with not only the federal budget, but the defense budget. connell: thank you, rich edson. dagen: let's bring in matt welch. how do these nominations play into, again, the defense cuts that are on
of becoming law. >>> critical meetings this week on capitol hill for former senator chuck hagel. he's come under fire for his remarks about iran and israel in the past. he'll sit down with leading democrat chuck schumer of new york, among others, starting today. hagel got a resounding endorsement yesterday from former secretary of state colin powell. >>> we learned overnight that u.s. forces played a role in a failed rescue attempt in somalia last week. u.s. air ships did enter restricted air space briefly but did not use weapon. the hostage was apparently killed in the raid. >>> beijing is shrouded in a toxic fog this morning. as air pollution continues to soar off the charts. schools have canceled outdoor activities. hospitals are getting flooded with patients with breathing problems. children and the elderly are being warned to stay indoors. the smog being blamed on rapid economic growth and a surge in car ownership. >>> and here at home, a scary situation for hundreds of patients treated at a veterans administration hospital in upstate new york. people may have been exposed to hiv or t
've got chuck hagel who he's trying to sell as a great infantry man. i love nurses, but they shouldn't be the head of hhs. we need qualified people with credibility with the other side. >> this whole thing's sort of this insider liberalism. >> right. >> it seems to me, ari, that's basically what jack is. he's an insider liberal, he's going to take his marching orders. you know, this administration runs everything from the oval office and president obama's ideology, which is a left wing ideology. i don't happen to share it. he won the election, i get that, but you just can't convince me that a jack lew or chuck hagel are first class appointments. they're not. nobody's going to buy that. >> how much time do i get to respond to jennifer's points? >> you get about 40 seconds. >> look, i think briefly on senator hagel, he was on the foreign relations committee, he spoke out about iraq, he spoke out about the surge, he has a record, some people disagree with his policies, i think he's imminently qualified, not only obviously because he served bravely for our country but also because he did
speaking with authority, but is this not another good reason for chuck hagel's nomination because he, unlike so many of his fellow republicans, prefers to act cautiously when it comes to these forays over seas? >> well, two things. he prefers to act cautiously using war as a last resort instead of a rather more immediate choice as had been the case over the last decade, but he's also a big supporter of working multilaterally and that's why he had been so critical of the bush administration in iraq. the problem wasn't necessarily that going into afghanistan too quickly. it was that we got distracted for all those years in iraq and let the situation in afghanistan deteriorate. chuck hagel was right at the time in criticizing the bush administration on this. that's why it has long struck me you would want a man who does not want to rush into warfare as a first resort sitting there in charge of the pentagon. >> right. mike, on a slightly broader scale, are you at all concerned that this president's rightful desire to get our troops out of these entrenched and intractable conflicts, that
that jack lew will be a fight just as chuck hagel will be a fight, just as susan rice was a fight. the second problem for president obama is that so far his chosen bantd doesn't include any sisters, nor does it include any racial diversity. even members of his own party are expressing dismay. new york democrat charlie rangel called the lack of women embarrassing as hell and yesterday chairwoman of the congressional black caucus, marcia fudge wrote a letter urging the president to nominate two members of the cbc. bill, you are a former diverse member of the president's -- >> still diverse. >> yes. you remain diverse, though not sequestered at 1600 pennsylvania avenue, for which we are thankful. i wonder what you make about this contention that he is being too insular, a, in terms of the possibility of group think, people that have been with him forever, and then, b, how much is the diversity problem for him? >> well, i'll start with b. you know, i think that what we're seeing here is more of an optics problem than it is a real problem because by the numbers half of the white house
're about to see on capitol hill with confirmation hearings when they get under way with chuck hagel and others. >> yeah, john brennan. the president getting pushed back on his choice for cia director and defense secretary. both men now having to defend their records and some controversial statements in their past. we'll get the latest, straight ahead. >>> also ahead, emotional testimony at a preliminary hearing tied to that shooting massacre at a movie theater out in aurora, colorado. from the first police officers to arrive on that scene, what one young officer thought as he came face to face with the suspected gunman. >> on a different note, a different approach to fitness. a lot of folks walk into the gym and feel intimidated by the perfect bodies all around them. now there is a gym that is only for people who need to lose a lot of weight. if you're thin and trying to stay in shape, this is not the gym for you. we'll get into this new idea. >> but will those rules make it easier for people who really have a problem to get the job done? we'll see what that's all about. >>> and one
. >> what do you think the confirmation of chuck hagel depends on? >> i think it depends on vincing the number of members of the senate particularly senator schumer, that he's got a balanced approach to the middle east, that he has the right temperament, the right background. i think -- i start with the premise that he's the president's nominee for the president's cabinet. i have a different standard. i think the president -- there's a presumption that the president should be able to appoint his own people. judges are a little different because that's lifetime tenure. that continues into a different presidency. but i think it's going to depend a lot on conversations that chuck -- that chuck hagel has over the next couple of weeks. i'm reserving judgment myself. i'm on the armed services committee and will hear the nomination. i'm going to have some questions. i will probably be meeting with him later this week, and i want to understand where he's coming from. but he's a solid guy with a lot of strong support, and the other thing i want to listen to is from peop
john kerry and chuck hagel. think of a time when a president surrounded himself with meaningful people. i'm not saying that jack lew doesn't deserve to be the secretary. but he's just not a lincolnesque choice. a president who dared to break the mold. >> is asking the world that they are up to the task? let's ask john layfield and chris stirewalt and myra weinstein. it did hearken back to a time when lincoln was very comfortable with the cabinet. what happened to those days? >> one of the things that has happened is we don't do much with cabinets anymore. they are there for photo ops. outside, there are a couple of key spots in defense justice. the president isn't engaged and he was back and forth for pictures. the other part is that for the president we have gotten to know him a lot better he is not here to do a deal with republicans. we have no deals come or not changing entitlements, and taxes are still on the table. neil: it's a safe choice for the president. he continues the philosophy of the president. maybe they want someone with a little bit more direct business experience, but
's a close relationship between the president and chuck hagel. i have traveled with him. i understand it but i also understand that chuck has the wherewithal and the ability to speak truth to power. >> what is his view of america's role in the world? whether he really believes that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, that clearly is not -- that's not correct. i mean, that's -- in fact, it's bizarre. >> hey, guys, how are you? how are you doing, man? how are you doing? good to see you. >> i challenge to you say on what basis are you still a republican? do you feel like this republican party has left you or have you left it? >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i'm still a republican. but in recent years, there's been a significant shift to the right and we have seen what that shift has produced, two losing presidential campaigns. i think what the republican party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country is changed. there's also a dark -- a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the p
and went with chuck hagel. i know, i've got friends that are for him and against him. but, candy, the thing is, there was a woman who would have been the best person for the job. and why did he step over her? it would have been a historic choice. i think there are a lot of people who are disappointed in that. >> we have a president that's not interested in diversity. you know, i'm not sure we can make that case, can we? >> 43% of the folks we have now of women. he does believe in diversity. >> two supreme court justices. >> i mean, in his cabinet he had five women, four african-americans, three hispanics and two asian americans. that's diversity. i really believe that this president believes in diversity. that's why i say, i think it's a little bit early. >> i think this whole conversation is a symbolic way of talking about a deeper issue. remains more difficult for women to rise to the top and it's worse in politics, i think, than in academia or corporate america where women have made more gains. ten years i've been here, i have yet to cover a campaign or a white house or even congressiona
